Welcome to the RIM website

RIM Records Info


“The term “Outsider Music” was first coined by Irwin Chusid, DJ of WFMU New Jersey USA. (Check out his book “Songs in the key of Z’).

“It is a music of no particular style or format. It could be Heavy Metal (aka Naughty music), Country or Surf. But what makes it original and unique is the guys who make it. Their approach is usually unorthodox. they read the manual then put it through the shredder. What comes out cannot be explained. Outsider Artists include Wesley Willis, Daniel Johnson. Bingo Gazingo and Wild Man Fisher.

“Rim Records specialises in this brave, new music. It is a vehicle to help champion those of no commercial value. Uncouth is the
new cool.”

– Sexton Ming, founder of RIM
